Many times I have read in magazines that you should only keep your makeup for a few months or so, then throw it out and buy new.
That got me thinking about the bronzer/blusher I own. Must admit I've had it a little longer than the experts recommend.
I specifically remember purchasing it back in 03. Yes, I said 03, as in 2003, as in 6 years ago. Oops.
I just don't wear makeup on my skin much (obviously). I do wear eyeliner and mascara daily, though.
But I remember back in May of 03, my friend Marie came to visit/cheer me up because Jeff was at war. Marie's face had a great glow, but I knew it wasn't from the sun, since Marie is ultra-aware of how the sun's rays age skin.
So I asked Marie what she used and she told me bronzer. I went out and bought some the very next day. May. 2003.
Even typing it out doesn't make me feel the need to throw it out and buy new, especially since I know I have at least 2-3 more months left of it. Take that, makeup experts.
**BTW...I changed my layout again in honor of St. Patty's Day. I am enjoying the change and hope you are, too!!
